An impeccable Michelin three-star Chinese restaurant.
I remember it was a long time ago when I first visited the Eight. At that time I didn’t care about Michelin or fine dining, I just want to try the famous suckling pig filled with fried rice and preserved meat. To be honest this dish did not surprise me, instead I felt a bit brutal.
What really intrigues me at the Eight is its range of exquisite dim sum, which keeps me coming back. Not only exquisite but also very tasty, like the steamed dumplings with crystal blue shrimps, steamed dumplings with pork and mushroom, baked tartelette and steamed barbecued pork buns. They are too cute.
For me, it’s not a perfect ending without desserts, so I ordered the chilled mango and coconut pudding in goldfish shape and the puff pastry with egg custard in light genseng flavour, delicious! The restaurant also provides a petit four which includes a mini Portuguese tart and a cup of milk tea, a taste of Macau.
Definitely worth going, a must visit restaurant in Macau.
